    I know that all the states have a little different curriculums. I was wondering what was on the 1st grade curriculum in your state.

    Wow. I don't think I have room to reply to everything that are on our state standards. Just in math, we have to teach:
    addition and subtraction to 18
    identify coins and value (I go ahead and teach how to do combos)
    2 D and 3D shapes
    time to hour and half-hour
    fractions as a set and division type
    patterns
    odd and even numbers
    place value
    writing numbers to 100
    temperature
    how to read a calendar
    probability
    estimation
    counting by 2's, 5's, 10's
    This is off the top of my head. I'm sure there is more. The language art TEKS and science/social studies TEKS are 2-3 pages each. Plus writing, health.. get the idea?

    Like bakingdiva, I don't have room/time to type them all up, but you can find Louisiana's Grade Level Expectations at this site: www . louisianaschools.net/lde/saa/1915.html It's free and you don't even need a password. You do, however, need to get rid of the spaces in the web address before you copy it to your address bar.

    It's really interesting to me how the same grade can teach such different things in different states. We teach:
    Science: water (sink/float), health/safety
    Social Studies: Map skills, Patriotism, family (relationships)

    If you look at the different standards in different states you will see the same discrepencies. Is it a wonder why some states have less problem meeting "No Child Left Behind" and others are way behind? There are so many discrepancies as to what the benchmarks are/should be since each state was allowed to set their own standards ...ok off my soapbox now.:eek:
